I have no idea why your even asking any questions
about that VW

Replaced the clutch & still has problems---so you want to
buy someone elses problems?


Car won't start-- so you can part with your money & get
a car that you can't even start?


Could be electrical or something?


Your going off what the owner said---Ya & why is he
selling it--because he can't afford to or figure out how to
keep it going?


I know money may be an issue but you don't buy a 16 year
old car regardless of condition ,not even if it was free ,I wouldn't
take it.


Do you know anything about VW's or have a college degree
in automotive technology?

Thermostat for VW golf 1996 The temp gauge raised to almost 220 but water temp light did not flush at all. Is it possible that the car has no thermostat?


Hi,
Usually if a vehicle has NO thermostat the engine runs too cold for to long. So I suspect your VW has a thermostat. Suggest you check to make sure you have ample antifreeze, and that the fan is working properly. If those two things are O.K. then a blocked radiator or water pump issue will need to be checked out. With a 50/50 mix of antifreeze 220 degrees will not harm your engine. Good Luck.
